Brunei Food Stalls - The alternative dining option. Apr 24, 2014
I'll be the first to admit it - when I travel I tend to eat at the more fancy establishments. More times than not, this also means the more expensive options. Please don't judge - this is not because I'm spoiled, but because I travel the world (often) and have been bitten by many local bugs that are unfriendly to fragile American stomaches (a la Delhi Belly, Montezuma's Revenge, etc...). Therefore, I have found that staying away from some of the more adventurous (some may say more fun) options has simply worked best for my guts. As such, you can imagine my reluctance when my colleague with an iron stomach recommended that we dine at one of the local food stalls in Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei, which is where the locals go for real (and fresh) Malay food. The name of the market was the Tamu Salera Food Stall (thanks to borneonikieta for helping me confirm). It was a short walk from the Radisson Brunei (perhaps 3/4 km away), was completely covered by tents and featured seafood as the most popular food choice. My colleague and I walked the perimeter of open air, indivually owned restaurants that butt up against each other in a large rectangle, all sharing a common dining area consisting of picnic tables and plastic chairs covered by a massive circus tent. Although slightly muggy, a nice breeze coming off the water kept the climate bearable. The aroma of grilled seafood and deep fried everything dominated the heavy air. We found a few selections at a few different vendors and went to work placing our orders. As our orders were ready we found a vacant spot at one of the tables and dove into a variety of recently caught Malay seafood dishes and a few local cats that had the same idea, tried their best to solicite donations. All in all, this experience was great fun, highly recommended and prooved so fresh that it spared a lasting memory on my fragile insides.

Interesting. Maybe I can add Bandar Seri Begawan to my Malaysia trip plans in 2015, so it may be a possibility to take a peak at this market.
